There are many times in life where we begin to feel like things are just not going the way we planned or expected. You may feel at times that your life doesn’t feel like it’s where it should be, leaving you feeling unhappy or unfulfilled. Unfortunately many continue to live their lives feeling this way, not knowing how to unlock their true potential and start living the successful, fulfilling and happy life they were created for. Truthfully anybody and everybody who is willing and has the knowledge can drop their current mediocre life and exchange it for the one they were meant to have, all you simply have to change your mindset.
You have to remember that God created each one of us in His image, and that He created us for a purpose, complete with our own set of gifts and talents. God desires that we live a happy, fulfilled life full of success and blessings. Of course this doesn’t mean that we won’t have disappointments or hard times it just means that when those times come life will still be good because of our dependence on Him.
Keys to Unlocking your Blessed and Successful Life
Key 1. Put God First
God’s whole purpose for creating us was to have a relationship with us. God wants an intimate relationship with us and wants to be first above all of our worldly desires, jobs, kids, hobbies or anything else. In His word God tells us in Matthew 6:33:
“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
You can also see that in Matthew 22:37 that are told:
“‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.”
When we put God first in our lives, we are showing Him that we respect and revere Him and that we place importance on our relationship with Him. We again can see that when we put our full love and trust in God that things begin to go well for us. We receive God’s favor, which can trump any circumstance on earth and will open the door for supernatural blessings to poor out over our lives. This can be seen in Job 22:21 and Job 36:11,
“Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you.”
“If they listen and obey God, they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant”
Key 2 – What you Plant you shall Harvest
Galatians 6:7 “Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant”
Planting and Harvesting are a major key to living a truly blessed life. We have all heard of the saying ” you reap what you sow” and basically it holds true for many things. Obviously we know that if we plant seeds of anger and negativity into our lives we will harvest a life full of sadness, loneliness and negativity. The Bible explains it this way in Romans 7:5:
“When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death.”
The same holds true for living a blessed and prosperous life. If you plant seeds of generosity you will harvest generosity in your life. If you plant seeds of kindness and love then you will harvest love and kindness back on you in your life. This is why God desires and calls us to plant seeds of generosity, love, compassion, kindness, helpfulness, and thankfulness into our lives, so when the harvest comes we will harvest a life full of blessings, favor and honor. If we look to the Word of God we can see that in the following verses:
Deuteronomy 15:10 “Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do.”
Proverbs 19:17 “If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord— and he will repay you!”
Jerimiah 17:7 “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence”
The second part to the planting and harvesting key is the volume in which we do it. We can all agree that the more seeds a farmer plants the more crop he will harvest. The same hold true for the seeds that we sow in life. We are told in the Word of God in Luke 6:38:
“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”
This scripture verse does not only mean financial giving, it can also refer to giving of your time, or your kindness, or love. It is telling us that the number of seeds we plant in our life will determine the greatness of the harvest we receive.
Key 3 – Speak Life, not Death
Many people are unaware of just how powerful their words can be. In the Bible we are told that through Jesus Christ God spoke into existence the earth and everything that exists today. The reason why this is important is that God could have just as easily snapped His fingers to create the world, but instead He spoke. This shows us the true power that words have in the spiritual realm. Even though we are in the natural realm and we speak in the natural realm (earth) our words are heard and have power in the spiritual realm.
The words we choose to speak can either create or they can kill. This is told to us in the Word of God in Proverbs 18:21
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.”
What this means is that if we speak curses over ourselves and our lives and we continually put ourselves down and tell ourselves we “Can’t” do things then those words will permeate into your mind and will begin to destroy your positivity, mindset, ambition and in the spiritual realm satan will be able to take those words and use them to discourage you and to tear you down.
When we choose to speak words of life, then we not only begin to create a mindset of positivity, happiness and thankfulness, but we also activate the supernatural and begin to live a life full of blessings and full of success through Jesus Christ. Choosing speak positively and choosing to speak good things over your life is the key to living a happier and more fulfilled life. It tells us in the Word of God that through Jesus Christ we can do all things. Not some or few things, but all things. It also tells us that we shall have what we pray and believe for in Mark 11:24
“I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours”
“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them”
The Truth is that everybody can live a life full of blessing, happiness and fulfillment, all they have to do is place God and their relationship with Him number one in their lives, begin planting the kind of seeds in their lives that they want to harvest, and begin speaking positive, uplifting words into their lives. Instead of saying you’re poor, or ugly or mean, or sick or a failure, or your business will never succeed. Start speaking out and confessing in Jesus’ name that you are rich and blessed, that you are beautifully and uniquely made, that you are nice and becoming a better person, that you are completely healthy and a success in your business and life. You receive that which you ask for by faith, so even if you are currently going through something and the things you are believing for hasn’t happened, continue to confess it in faith and you will have it.
